Medical image science


Medical image science comprises techniques and processes intended to create images of a person for medical purposes. It reaches across disciplines such as radiology, endoscopy, microscopy, image processing and visualization.

Radiology means imaging the inside of the human body for the purpose of making a diagnosis. The term medical radiology includes diagnostic radiology as well as intervention - treatment guided by images.

Development over the last few years of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound and software for three-dimensional imaging offers entirely new opportunities for diagnosis and treatment. At the molecular and cellular level, the new techniques will make diagnosis possible before symptoms appear, and allow individually-adapted gene-based therapy with great precision. The surgery of the future will be bloodless and preserve healthy tissue.
